Breaking out at Juventus, leading to Chelsea where he struggled, winning the Champions League with Real Madrid in a supporting role, Alvaro Morata had a few years up and down.
As he now plays for Atletico, he has faced some of the toughest defenders of Europe in his journey.
In quotes by AS he discussed some of the very best he’s faced with, Morata said with a laugh, “Chiellini, I don’t know if he’s doing it intentionally, but when he meets me, he’s always destroying me,”
“Sergio Ramos is also a tough defender, while when you go against Virgil Van Dijk it seems like you hit a mountain,” he added.
Even with Morata’s top-quality heading skills, defenders get him physically better all too often.
Morata got a bad reputation in his time in England for evading from the clash against tough central defenders.
